Jamaican singer, Anita Antoinette continues to get better and better as she continues her proverbial trod along the road towards becoming The Voice, advancing to the Top 12 in the live performance round of the NBC talent show Wednesday night after a stellar rendition of All About The Bass 24 hours earlier.
Antoinette, one of five singers on Team Gwen (coached by Gwen Stefani) and 20 overall who qualified for the live performance round, built on her previous performances of hits such as Turn Your Lights Down Low, I Can See Clearly Now and Rude with a rendition of the Meghan Trainor song. Her vocal range and apparent level of comfort in her stage movement was on full display during the set, as she added small elements of Reggae into her cover of the song in a relaxed, yet fun-filled manner.
Her performance had all the judges in awe, with Stefani saying, “You have that personality that’s so natural onstage,” while fellow judge, Adam Levine said he wished he could hang out with her, talking up her persona and vocal ability.
America seemingly agree with the judges’ assessments to the point that it was the second highest selling iTunes track among Voice contestants up until Wednesday morning when voting closed, just one spot behind teammate, Taylor John Williams.
During Wednesday night’s results show, Antoinette was spared the agony of her fate being decided by Stefani as she and Williams received enough votes to make it into the top 12.
The live performance round will continue on Monday night.
